Hey guys...

on www.filehippo.com, they do have a number of antispyware applications on there, and probably the best!

Question: Do I need them all?

I know only ONE Firewall and ONE Antivirus, But do I NEED ALL of the Antispyware applications from filehippo? Or Do I just just take a few?

any expert help would be great!

You don't need them all, only 2 or 3. The reason you need more than one-each will find things another one didn't. What you can do is try them and evaluate them. Choose the ones you like best.

I generally suggest having two or three at the most, since the law of diminishing returns applies in the case of anti-spyware applications. I think it to be more important to be a cautious and careful computer user, and to understand best security practices, than to load one's hard drive with a legion of applications.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
